The God of science and irrational rationale.
The article is well written and presents a logical and reasoned approach to the entire subject of censorship and its rationale. It does however fail rather miserably regarding the tone of its attack on the basis for censorship. Mr Baron depicts those who wish to introduce censorship as possessing some kind of mean Calvinistic streak running through their bodies and perversely sitting in their homes gorging themselves on every scrap of scripture they can get. In stark contrast Mr. Baron offer up some incense to an effigy of Darwin and invokes the God of science with some low tone chanting and murmurings about empirical evidence and the scientific method. Mr. Barons depiction of himself and every other detractor of Biblical scripture as rational and intelligent while the believer is naught but a purveyor of bumf, moral outrage and outright fairytale is not only hackneyed, illogical and unreasoning but rather ironically demonstrably false. There have been and will continue to be great scientific minds who also adhere to and are believers in Biblical scripture. One often finds that the most vocal detractors of religious scripture are the least likely to have read or understood it. However as this was not the main thrust of the article if one ignores this bias then its a fine thing to behold and well worth reading.
